I'll probably check that out...maybe those deleted scenes will fill in some of the holes that I thought were in the theatrical release.

Day of the Dead has aged well over the years IMO. When I saw it in the theatre, I was like "ehh, it's pretty good". But in 2004, for some reason it hits closer to home than it used to. Maybe it was ahead of its time?

Does Pet Semetary count? That had some creepy undead-like sheyot in it...

Is there even any difference between any of those movies? Over half of them have the word Dead in the title.

Yeah, some have less blood than others.

I keep debating to myself whether I should get Dawn of the Dead 2004 on region1 or not, to many decisions today..

28 Days later - as a filmmaker, I love how Danny Boyle decided to use about 3 "standard" camera angles in the course of the whole movie - and the movie just plain kicks ass.

i just saw the trailer for a new zombie movie coming out of Sept 24.  Shaun of the Dead, I hear it a satire of zombie movies.  Not too much like Scary Movie, but just a more humor driven zombie movie.  It is too soon to tell whether it is good or not.

Trust me, it's good.  It's DAMN good.

It's not so much a satire, more a homage to zombie movies.  There's a lot of affectionate references to other Zombie movies in there.  It came out in the UK back in April, and it's the best movie I've seen so far this year.

Don't get me wrong, I like Zombie movies of all kind.  Except, I hope it doesn't embarrass the genre, by making it corny.  Previous movies have done that, "Dead Alive" and "House of the Dead" for example, made the genre into a joke and that sucked.  If you say Shaun of the Dead it good, then it makes things different.

Like I said, trust me, it's not corny. 

If anything, it adds to the genre, and while it's totally hilarious, some of the scene are genuinely scary.

I am a fan of Romeros films and of his night of the living dead trilogy i think dawn of the dead was best. By the way if anyone knows (and cares) it seems at moment it wont be left as trilogy, It looks as if Romero's 4th Living Dead film has been given the greenlight. Its desing name is called "land of the dead". http://www.homepageofthedead.com/

He said something about that in the Dawn of the Dead (Old one) commentary...

And if you want to nitpick, Resident Evil isn't technically a zombie movie either.

Romero was attached to direct Resident Evil at one point in like 1997 as it languished on a studio shelf.  It might not have sucked so much if it hadn't done so much languishing.  It really wouldn't be a hard movie to write.  Not exactly plot- character- or dialogue-driven.  All they would have had to do was not screw it up by turning it into a juvenile Hollywood action flick...

I saw Resident Evil: Apocalypse earlier this week, and I loved it.  It had some good moments.  I loved homage to The Return Of the Living Dead, during the graveyard scene.

I just saw Shaun of the Dead and you were right Melllvar, it wasn't horrible like "Dead Alive".

Dead Alive was an embarrassment to zombie movies, it made zombies movies corny for a while.  Shaun of The Dead is good the way it is.

Interesting thing about Dead Alive though, who'd have thought that the director of Dead Alive would go on to win an Oscar for LOTRs.  That's right Peter Jackson, Oscar winner, directed Dead Alive.

Actually, I think he was meant to only write the script to Resident Evil.  However, he had an arguement with the studio as to how the story should go, so they fired him and threw his script away.  His script was posted on the internet at one point and from what I understand it was more character driven, while Resident Evil that we've seen is more action packed.

I can't believe anyone can dislike "Dead Alive."  It is, perhaps, the funniest scary movie I've ever seen.  It's dark, twisted, and hilarious in all manners of those words.  The effects were fantastic for a tiny-budgeted zombie film.  Plus, you gotta love the kung-fu fighting priest.  Rarely has a movie made me laugh so hard that I had to pause the film.

Saw "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) a week ago, and I'm pretty unimpressed.  IMO, it's symbolic of modern remakes: too many characters, stupid cliches, poor characterization, not enough zombie fun.  Maybe I'm just a purist, but I didn't like the super-mobile zombies.  It just seems too different than the zombie I've known and loved.

Still haven't seen "Shaun of the Dead," even though it's been sitting on my harddrive for a few weeks.  It's the original version from British cinema, too.  Once I get two hours, I'm going to watch it.  I even think its going to be out on DVD soon in the States.

I just love all these new commercials in movies. If only the zombies were wearing Nike and holding bottles of Pepsi while they were being gunned down, then Resident Evil: Apocalypse would have been a success.

Also, does Milla Jovovich have some kind of clause in her contract that requires every movie that she's in to contain a scene where she's only wearing bandages and/or at least one topless scene?

I saw Resident Devil with my other half starring Milla Jojovich, pretty scary.  28 days later is uncomfortable to watch but I find Resident Devil more disturbing.

It comes out in December, and be aware, it has a few more extras than the R2 version (which has a lot!).

I've watched zombie movies such as Dawn of the Dead (the new version), RE, RE:Apocalypse, Shaun of the dead and a few more...
Thing I don't understand is how they depict (the movies I've seen anyway) the army as hopeless and the zombies take over.
You don't need to be a 5-star general to know it is absolutly moronic.
Creatures that can't run, walk slowly towards you, don't hide and don't use firearms... sound more like fire practice to me than an actual thread. The soldiers in those movies never hear of APCs, tanks or any other armoured vehicle, which is just laughable.

"Yes, lets nuke the city! all our men are dying!"
"But sir, we haven't even tried to use the tanks or APCs"
"The what?"
"You know, those large metal unaccessable-to-the-outside-filled-with-machineguns-and-firearms cars?"
"But dude, nukes!!!"

I like "Stacy."  It's Shoestring budget from Japan, but Oh, heavens so much blood.  The dismemberment and Guts.  Those poor schoolgilrs, I don't know how they ever pulled it together to be those awkward zombies that they were.

That's probably true for all but Shaun Of The Dead, as in Shaun it's the Army come in at the end and clean house.

George A. Romero often says his zombie movies represent how we ignore problems and not all agree to the proper way of solving them.  That is pretty much the focus of Night of the Living Dead.  In the movie you have people debating on the situation, but hardly agree as to how to properly solve the problem, thus it gets worse.

Hopefully.

I saw RE: Apocalypse the other night. Call me one of the "unwashed", but I enjoyed the hell out of it...although you most definitely need to check your brain at the door (groans)...

Stacy is funny as hell, but the King and tyrant of Japanese Zombie movies is Wild Zero.  I will never stop making people watch this movie.

Actually, Stacy reminds me of Chinese vampire movies more than western zombie films.

I decided somewhere on the second page to stop reading replies and just post my own on the basis that I could very easily become entrenched in an Evil Dead conversation that quickly degenerates into some stubborn argument. That said, I voted for The Evil Dead as it's my favorite film on that list.

Kicked your ass.

The Master of Zombie Movies, George A. Romero will be directing his fourth Dead film.

"Land of the Dead" which will feature the talents of Dennis Hopper and John Leguizamo.

Here's what zombie make-up master, Tom Savini has to say.


 
Quote
Land of the Dead: A reader at Dark Horizons recently sat in on a Q & A with effects guru, Tom Savini, where he discussed George Romero's upcoming cotinuation of his zombie series with the crowd...

"Shooting will be in Toronto starting in early October and apprently Romero has been spending his days location scouting around the city.  Savini also talked about how he will have a large role in the film playing a character who goes into the the zombie infested world to get supplies for wealthy survivors. 

The coolest part he mentioned was that he would also be reprising his role from the original 'Dawn of the Dead' (the Biker Gang guy) that died and fell into the fountain in the mall- who has since become a zombie.  He said that he will actually kill his zombie self in the new film. 

There was also talk of using several CG zombies to sort of update the effects and show the audience things that a guy with makeup on could never pull off.  Lastly he said Romero has made it clear his zombies will slow moving, as compared to the 'fast zombies' like in the 'Dawn' Remake, the way Romero always did it."

I cant wait to see part four, should be cool to see what George does.

Ahh so many great zombie flicks, the living dead trilogy and its remakes, 28 days later, Resi evil 1 & 2, well for the resident evil films I dunno about great, watchable at least....

Anyway I dont know if I should choose Shaun of the Dead or Evil Dead trilogy, I mean horror wise its evil dead but overall I have to go with SOTD just because it is unbearably funny yet the horror factor still remains.
Though actually Evil dead dosent have zombies as such, well not in the conventional sense...Join us...
